Congratulations Jesse on being our Exceptional Volunteer of the Quarter! Jesse recently moved to Portland from Connecticut with his new wife. He is a Research Associate at OHSU studying liver and lung cancers. Jesse has a Master of Arts in Applied Medical Anthropology from the State University of New York at Buffalo and a Master of Public Health degree from the University of Connecticut. While in the process of studying for his MPH, he had a paper published on health hazards from occupational chemicals, highlighting the need for safer alternatives to reduce the use of highly toxic chemicals in the workplace. Jesse loves brewing beer, riding bikes, and kayaking and is excited to kayak every river in the Northwest!
